Wonderful to have such gracious and friendly guests from the Kimberley in WA. So pleased that you were able to see Wings Wildlife animals for your 2 small children and appreciated our closeness to the beach and CBD. Thank you for staying with us and leaving the house in such a tidy state - would love to meet you again one day.

A Gem in Penguin

Pros: USB hub to help keep our devices charged up, free WiFi, comfortable bedding, great uninterrupted views to the ocean, Terry the host.
Cons: I wouldn't change a thing.
A lovely comfortable home away from home and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Every detail has been carefully thought through to make it a memorable experience, exceeding our expectations. The owner Terry was very helpful and made us feel extremely welcome, before, during and after our stay. Highly recommend staying here, you won't be disappointed.

Close to beach.

Pros: Spacious, clean and great view of ocean.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Small town, very pretty, not enough cafes open. Beautiful coastal strip and rolling hillsides in hinterland.
Clean, open and quiet, great views, meticulously maintained. Great value for money

Was a great pleasure to have Terry and his lovely wife stay with us at our holiday home by the sea at Penguin. They enjoyed their stay so much that they have booked in for another 2 nights next month. Both found that coming from Hobart was the perfect distance to travel and unwind in a friendly, warm and inviting town. Looking forward to their return.
